I have many children producing this standard of writing. This student has not checked this draft and will be using our class checklist to make changes over the next few days. The child wrote this in 40 minutes and I was impressed by the content… just so much to say. Oral language development within a Language Experience classroom is the key, combined with the Early Year’s teaching strategies. For international readers, this student will finish their first year of formal schooling this Friday and is 6 years old. I haven’t posted for a while due to reports etc… Hope you enjoy this letter to Santa!
